This week, S4C’s Cynefin turns its attention to the North East as it visits the largest town in North Wales, and as it was known for centuries, the largest town in Wales. Although Wrexham is inextricably linked to the world of industry, there is a deeper history to this town that our presenters explore with the help of some local characters.

We will hear of the unique history of the steelworks in the area, the town’s inescapable connection to football and the warm welcome which the locals have given to visitors throughout the centuries.

Politics and sports often go hand in hand but that’s particularly true for one hotel in the centre of Wrexham, as one of the presenters, Siôn Tomos Owen explains,

“The Wynnstay Arms has welcomed its fair share of legends over the years, including Prime Minister William Gladstone and according to local folklore, David Lloyd George stood on the balcony and announced that the First World War was over. His diary suggests he was somewhere else at the time, but why let the facts get in the way of a good story!

Arfon Jones, the new North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner at Police HQ in Colwyn Bay.g

A pioneering scheme to divert low level offenders away from a life of crime is being launched in North Wales.

The idea has been championed by North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones who says it will cut reoffending rates as well as reducing police and court time.

It’s anticipated part of the Checkpoint programme will be piloted in a selected area of North Wales in the New Year with the aim of rolling it out across the region over the next 12 months.

The scheme, which has been developed by Cambridge University, has been successfully trialled in Durham.

Offenders are offered the chance to avoid prosecution by seeking help from rehabilitation services in the community after signing a contract to say they will comply.

Each offender will be supervised by a skilled ‘navigator’ – many of whom have successfully completed rehabilitation programmes – the four-month period and they face prosecution if the contract is broken

Durham’s Checkpoint programme has already won a national award from the Howard League for Penal Reform and has achieved impressive results in reducing reoffending.

Wrexham Glyndwr University has today announced sporting legend Colin Jackson as its new Chancellor.

Colin, who was given an Honorary Fellowship for his services to sport by Wrexham Glyndwr University in 2016, said: “It is an honour and a thrill to take up the position of Chancellor at Wrexham Glyndwr University. The university excels in a lot of things that I believe in, such as social inclusion, and I look forward to being hands-on in this new role.”

The Chancellor role is an ambassadorial one, which will see Colin preside over graduation ceremonies and other on-campus events. Wrexham Glyndwr University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Maria Hinfelaar said: “We are delighted to welcome Colin Jackson as our new Chancellor.

“He joins us at a very exciting time as we progress with our Campus 2025 programme to improve our campuses and facilities, which includes our partnership with Football Association of Wales to build the new National Football Development Centre at our Colliers Park site in Wrexham.

“Colin will be an inspiring role model for our students and graduates, whatever subject area they are in. We will also involve him in our community-supporting initiatives, and are hoping to bring him to North Wales regularly.”

I thought to start with Cialis 5 mg at first and then after the effect increase the dose or stop. The effect was just stunning, except that there was a little reddening on my face in the first few minutes after taking the pill. Excellent drug.

Full 3 day wristbands for admission to all FOCUS Wales events are available now at www.focuswales.com/tickets tickets start at an early bird price of £35 each.
